Two way designs (also called without nap) are prints that look the same whether held upside down or right side up. When the print is 2-way, pattern pieces can be turned top to bottom for cutting. This is the preferred fabric.
Required yardage for each size dress using 44-45 inch fabric:
Dress Size 2 way fabric (without nap)
Small 1 and 3/8 yd
Medium 1 and 3/4 yd
Large 1 and 3/4 yd
X-Large 2 yds
NOTE: All dress layouts were tested using 44 inch wide fabric folded in half lengthwise.
HINT: Fold fabric right sides together. Center back seam is then ready to stitch after it is cut out.
